6 inches of the wettest, heaviest valley snow - power's out - broken branches - caved-in coops (next time snow is forecast we must remove tarps!) Ugh!! :he

But no school, so that at least has given me time to clean up.
:eek: Six inches? That’s incredible! Have you ever had that much before?

Wet snow is horrifically heavy!

DD1’s ballet teacher has had so many pet interruptions, she’s incorporated a show me your pet cam at the end of every class when everybody takes a few minutes to sit & talk stuff over. Apparently the poor woman has a lot of “LOOK OUT AMY, YOUR CAT IS RIGHT BEHIND YOU” moments. I guess remote learning is stressful for the teachers in ways they never could have predicted. 🤣

Every few years we get about this much. The problem is that our valley snow is so heavy we always lose power and trees/branches. The live oaks suffer the most because they have foliage year round. Grey pines also topple over because they tend to be top heavy with more of a tap root than a root system.

You've got that right!! E, son 1 and I had to get under where the snow had caved in the tarp covered coops and push up at the same time to lift it enough to get some of it to slide off. And it doesn't really "slide" off - it sticks mightily to the tarps. Definitely got a work out today!

I put welded wire fencing across the top of one of my runs, then tarp over that. Works like a champ. Finally getting to the point that it leaks just a bit in a couple spots, after better than 6 years, maybe close to 10, and the tarp wasn't new then.
